Yukon is my first dog (as an adult) and I couldn’t have asked for a more special buddy. I adopted him from the local Humane Society in March of 2007 as an 8 month old gangly, goofy pup and he’s been my heart dog ever since. He might be just a plain black dog but he is bursting with personality and is just plain fun. He lives for frisbee, food and swimming!


Mira is a nutty little Australian Shepherd that spent the first couple years of her life locked in a barn stall. I guess her original family didn’t research the breed as they locked her up because she was herding the neighbor’s horses (really, who’d have thunk it – a herding dog…herding). I adopted her in December of 2007 – she was a shell of a dog, scared of a lot of things. She still has a number of hangups but she’s now an insanely hyper dog, full of personality and impossible to keep up with. She keeps us all very busy, life would be quite dull without her! She has an intense obsession with all things round and can be found obsessively herding all of us around the house.


Oh gosh, now for me…I’m a stubborn independent girl (err…woman, I guess I am 40) raised in rural Michigan. By day I’m a lab nerd, working in a mid-size hospital – as a  Microbiologist. By night (and weekend and time off), I’m a photography loving, motorcycling riding, outdoor junky with perpetually itchy feet.

Shortly after Mom died, Dad handed me a check that she had written to me right before she was gone. Dad thinks it was for my birthday. I decided to buy something that would last forever and that I’d use a lot so I picked up this @alaskaguidecreations Kodiak C.U.B. to replace the stretchy strap Bino harness I was using before. It’s been so awesome for this trip!! It’s not too big and will be perfect for everything from deer hunting to winter squirrel hunting! #binoharness #hunting #antelopehunting #wyoming #publiclandowner #keepitpublic #publiclandhunting
In Michigan we have people performing birth control procedures on deer. I’m convinced that in Wyoming, they implant antelope with @onxhunt chips so they know exactly where the public/private land boundaries are. I’d be a big fat liar if I said I wasn’t frustrated!! Tomorrow I’m going to try and backpack in to a huge section of BLM land about 4 miles out, it’s connected to the BLM land I have been hunting by a 600 yard wide section with private on each side. Thank goodness for onX and Gaia GPS, otherwise it’d be seriously challenging to navigate. Today I saw many cows and sheep, loads of cow shit, many blaze orange hats and one coyote. #hunting #antelopehunting #publiclandowner #publiclandhunting #wyoming #keepitpublic
My commentary on the mud today 😂 #hunting #antelopehunting #publiclandhunting #publiclandowner #keepitpublic #mud #dannerboots #wyoming
My first day of antelope hunting didn’t result in any antelope sightings but the only word I can use to describe it is epic. Sticky, thick mud making my boots feel like they weighed 10 lbs made navigating the rough, broken terrain even more difficult. I did kick 4 mule deer bucks out of their bed in a little wash which was neat! I tore my pants on barbed wire (I’m less than graceful at navigating that evil stuff). And, on my hike back, I saw a plump little cottontail, fur aglow in the evening light. Would this be my first rabbit? Apparently not, I shot twice and missed twice. After that the rabbit figured I was too stupid to make him dinner and bolted. I was sleeping by 730! #hunting #publiclandhunting #publiclandowner #blm #wyoming #antelope #antelopehunting
